MobileDemand has announced the release of two robust, rugged cases for Microsoft Surface Pro and Surface Go that include patented features and utility to enhance the capability of consumer and light enterprise grade tablets, such as Microsoft® Surface™ and Apple® iPad™ devices. These breakthrough cases include options to allow users to scan barcodes, take mobile payments with a credit card reader or payment device, build a 3D model of a scene or object, and mount the device to almost anything one can imagine. The Microsoft Surface devices, with the new MobileDemand cases, turn into mobile computing multi-function tool to get more done with the mobile workforce in retail enterprises, as well as logistics, supply chain, industrial, healthcare, field service and field sales applications.
Get more done with the productivity tool -
The cases can be configured with a high-performance Honeywell® N6703 barcode scanner option for professional and enterprise-grade scanning features along with superior read range, snappiness, and ergonomic button triggers.
The cases can also be outfitted to take mobile payments with credit card readers with MagTek® or ID TECH® magnetic stripe readers (MSR) with varying security levels, as well as a hinged bracket to hold the Ingenico® iSMP4 payment device. Reading barcodes and taking payments are staple features in mobile Point of Sale (mPOS) retail applications.
Surveyors and inspectors can now use the Microsoft Surface devices to scan 3D models of facilities, machinery, or other objects. The Intel® RealSense™ Depth Camera D415 can be mounted on the case, giving another highly productive feature available for the Microsoft Surface user to accomplish more.
Easy to Carry and Hold – Both cases offer a comfortable back hand strap, convenient briefcase handle and shoulder strap for reliable mobility. A secure grasp on the device is key to ease of use and preventing users from dropping the device, keeping IT costs down and users satisfied with their tool.
Simple Mounting to Almost Anything – The Surface cases can be mounted where the work gets done. They include a plate for an easy to use and implement, patented Snap Mount system. The optional mounting rail is ultra-slim and sturdy, adding functionality in the field to mount the device to walls, beams, bars, side of machinery, counters, desks, lecterns, cabs of vehicle, and even securely mount in forklifts. The mount is engineered for quick insertion and release of the Surface tablet. An innovative magnet mount system is available to magnetically attached to metal walls and sides of machinery or vehicles without having to drill holes. Additionally, a new magnetic Surflink connector carriage captures the Surflink connector and allows strong magnets to hold it in place on the cases. Users are better able to handle the connector.

The rugged Surface Pro case and rugged Surface Go case with several of the productivity options are available today while a couple options will be available in the coming months. MobileDemand also offers the Surface devices as bundles; delivering the rugged and productive Surface, freeing the users from having to purchase and apply the case, screen protector, and productivity enhancements themselves.
